Reboots can be sequels. There are two types of reboots - Continuity reboots (like Bateman Begins) where all previous iterations are thrown out the window for a fresh start - or Franchise reboots such as The Force Awakens which basically means new life is given to a franchise - this can be a sequel to a previous installment that is coming out super late in the game. Blade Runner 2049 is a reboot that is also a sequel.
